  1. Icons for OneDrive - meaning not clear


    Hi


    I use OneDrive on both my desktop and laptop. On both, if I look in File Explorer, ALL of my OneDrive files have the "people" icon displayed, e.g. :

    I certainly haven't shared all of these, in fact I just created the "Test Nonsense" file this morning, to test out OneDrive


    According to the Microsoft documentation:



    Icons for OneDrive - meaning not clear 23071e63-125f-44ec-8af7-961c9be2feb7?upload=true.png

    Something seems amiss - can anyone explain?


    tHanks!

  2. OneDrive folder icon changed to plain

    Hi,

    Thank you for replying.

    I understand your concern and suggest you to Unlink OneDrive and run OneDrive setup
    again and check. Here is the steps:


    • Right-click the white OneDrive cloud icon in the notification area, at the far right of the taskbar.

      (You might need to click the Show hidden icons arrow next to the notification area to see the
      OneDrive icon.)

    • Click Settings, and then click Unlink.

    • Follow the steps in the Welcome to OneDrive wizard to set up OneDrive.
    Do notify us if the issue still persists and we'll be glad to help.

  4. Icons for OneDrive - meaning not clear

    Windows 10 - OneDrive

    Right click on the app and one of the properties has an option to not automatically start it. Uncheck, restart the computer, and it should stop. If you want to go another step further, find the OneDrive app in the start menu, right click on it and uninstall.

    If that is still insufficient, there is a batch uninstaller for OneDrive available online. I can copy the code here if you need it.
